Capezio to sponsor Dance Proms

Posted on May 29, 2014


image006Dancewear brand Capezio is to sponsor Dance Proms 2014. The international celebration of dance, which takes place on November 2, is designed to showcase the high standards of dance from around the UK and the rest of the world and covers an array of genres including salsa, street dance, cheerleading, ballet and ballroom.

Capezio will be supporting Dance Proms through a number of initiatives, including sponsorship of the gala performance at the Royal Albert Hall, setting up competitions giving members of the public the chance to attend Dance Proms and to win Capezio products and an exciting in store event called Dancing Windows in October.

A spokesperson for Capezio said: “We are delighted to sponsor Dance Proms this year, as the event is so synonymous with how we at Capezio view dance. We regard dance as an art form, a lifestyle and an attitude and it is so inspiring to see these talented young dancers from around the world embodying this on stage.”

A spokesperson for Dance Proms added: “It is so exciting to see Capezio show their support for international youth dance excellence by sponsoring Dance Proms. Each year, the event is a truly inspirational evening, displaying just how much passion and talent there is amongst young dancers.”
Patrons for Dance Proms 2014 include Darcey Bussell, Angela Rippon, Matt Flint, Chris Hollins, Arlene Phillips and Lisa Riley. Last year’s event involved 25 dance acts from across the globe and more than 450 talented dance students.

In the June issue of Dance Today we will announce our Dance Today Teacher of the Year 2014, who will win a pair of tickets to Dance Proms.
